Who is the eagle mentioned in the poem?
I was raised in the state of Illinois. The eagle mentioned in the poem was
John P. Altgeld, a governor of Illinois. In the early days of the labor
movements, there was a riot in Chicago at a place called the Haymarket.
Police were sent in and many were injured or killed. Altgeld pardoned the
workers who rioted there because he felt that theirs was a just cause. For
this action he was vilified by those in power; nevertheless, Lindsay was
right. "To live in mankind is far more than to live in a name."

I believe the Eagle is Abraham Lincoln. Both Lindsay and Lincoln were from
Illinois, and this is an interesting reply to "Captain, Oh my Captain" by
Whitman, with a nod to 'When lilacs last in the courtyard bloomed", where a
different bird a thrush is used. Whitman was often much more (pun not
intended but apt) flowery in his verse.

The word "sounded" is actually "wounded." Please correct it!

Lindsay's writing of Altgeld; this is a political statement; it's not about
eagles at all.

I just love this poem! It is just so touching to read about the eagle. Plus
they are getting extinct too. This poem really touched my heart and I
recommend it to all animal lovers out there that want to preserve wildlife.
